AAVSO Alert Notice 541
March 16, 2016

V3661 Ophiuchi = Nova Oph 2016 = PNV 17355050-2934240


Event: Nova in Ophiuchus

Independent discovery by:
- Minoru Yamamoto (Okazaki, Aichi-ken, Japan, reported via H.
Yamaoka, Kyushu University)
- Yuji Nakamura (Kameyama, Mie, Japan, reported via Yamaoka)

Discovery magnitude:
- Yamamoto: ~10.6 on four 15-second frames and using a Canon
5DMRK2 camera + 135-mm lens
- Nakamura: ~10.6 on a 30-second CCD image and using a 135-mm lens

Discovery date:
- Yamamoto: 2016 March 11.80-11.82 UT
- Nakamura: 2016 Mar. 11.832 UT

Coordinates (2000.0): R.A. 17 35 50.41 Dec. -29 34 23.8 (from VSX)

Spectra: Spectroscopy obtained by U. Sollecchia (central Italy) on
Mar. 14.15 UT through clouds indicates the object as a nova
(reported by U. Munari (Padova Observatory)). Munari notes that
N Oph 2016 is highly reddened, reinforced by photometry he obtained
with F.-J. Hambsch and A. Frigo (see notes below).

Observing recommendations: The nova is somewhat faint, but
observations of all types (visual, CCD, DSLR, spectroscopy) as
instrumentation permits are strongly encouraged as it evolves.

Charts: Charts for Nova Oph 2016 may be created using the
AAVSO Variable Star Plotter (VSP) at http://www.aavso.org/vsp. Be
sure to include spaces in the name as shown.
